Special jobs[edit | edit source]

These jobs are available as a controllable character after acquiring them along the storyline's progression or as a sidequest. Their special job replaces the base Squire job. Guests can modify their equipment and abilities in between battle sessions, however, they cannot be controlled, nor can they participate in non-storyline battles. After the character joins the party, they are fully controlled in any battle.

Non-playable jobs[edit | edit source]

Enemy jobs[edit | edit source]

Other jobs[edit | edit source]

The following jobs are story related jobs used during the cutscenes and serve no purpose in battle as the majority of them possess no action abilities. Curiously, the developers did take time to give them a job description.
